Former members of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity chapter at Louisiana Tech tell Buzzfeed they heard that same kind of racist chant that got the frat's Oklahoma chapter shut down sung at their school.
One former Louisiana Tech student, Dylan Merriman, told the site about a very specific memory from a few years ago:
“It was the summer of 2010. I was at a rush party at the SAE at LA. Tech house along with all the other freshman who had been invited,” Dylan Merriman wrote in an interview with BuzzFeed News. “I cant remember exactly what he [an SAE active at the party] chanted/drunkenly said but it was similar to the video that has been on social media.”
A different former pledge, who told Buzzfeed he didn't want to be identified because he was worried about consequences at his job, said he'd seen people sing the racist chant "at least a dozen times" between 2010 and 2011.
After Buzzfeed publicized the allegations of the two former Louisiana Tech students, the fraternity's spokesperson issued a statement saying the frat's national headquarters is "actively investigating the allegationns of racism, which includes, which includes looking into details about the culture of the chapter, at Louisiana Tech University." The statement said the frat plans to make its findings public in time.
